On to NBUS#9! Our beautiful hostess is, of course Darnell.
The optional twist(s), this week are; 1. CASE a card and/ or 2. Hidden word.
The key word here is optional, you do not have to add the any of the twist is you do not want to.
This is the card I found on Pinterest and I really liked it, but did not have that cross stamp or the flower stamps.....in fact all I really had was the oval die.......but I gave it a try with what I have.......
You see, I have a couple NBUS dies I wanted to use........that gorgeous cross die from Gina Marie and then there is the new set of cross stitched oval dies...from Gina Marie also.......so yummy!!
The roses are a stamp and die set (NBUS also) that I bought just as it was turning into fall time.
I, for the love of candy, could NOT find my Happy Easter Stamp! So I went with this sentiment, and it is also NBUS, embossed with white on vellum.
The background of the crosses was made by scribbling markers on an acrylic block, giving it a good spritz of water and flipping it over onto white card stock. I was having so much fun I did an other piece of c.s. with much lighter colors too. I do put these papers between a kitchen paper towel (on the bottom) and a clean paper on top and then set them under something heavy until dry........very little warping.
The roses nearly got the best of me! I stamped with white ink and embossed with white powder......then used the whole outline die.......okay, but not what I wanted. There is about three dies to the rose, so I die cut the middle......that by it's self wasn't going to work either........grrrr! Then I happened to lay the die cut over the embossed part, the embossing would show if I moved that die cut ever so slightly. WOW! that made the rose look almost like I had added glitter!
A closer look at the completed roses on the card.
I guess I am not very good at CASEing, but the inspiration was differently from Susan.
Darnell is having surgery tomorrow, please keep her in your prayers.
Thanks for stopping by.
